How to Build Your Perfect Wardrobe

 Instructions
    1.   Assess the clothing you currently own. Pull out all items that no longer fit properly or reflect your style & personality. I suggest donating the clothing or giving your friends a chance to see if anything may suit them.
    2.    Next, after all discarded clothing is removed,sort through all remaining clothing for items needing repair such a buttons & zippers replaced or minor alterations. Place all items to the side until you can have time to mend or take to your local dry cleaners. Now, take a moment & look at your wardrobe to make sure that your wardrobe isn't lacking the basics. Basics,like a classic white button down shirt,plain black,gray or white tees,properly fitted light & dark wash jeans.
3.        
Make a checklist of all the items needed to make your wardrobe complete in order of importance & what needs added first.Keep your checklist with you when shopping & check off the items as you purchase them.Once your list is complete you'll be well on your way to having the perfect wardrobe.
Tips & Warnings
    •    
Do regular wardrobe inventory every 60-90 days checking for items that no longer fit properly or are in need of repair.This will help maintain your wardrobe.
    •    
When storing use hangers that are the same to ensure easy access. Also,for heavier items use padded hangers so that you can avoid hanger bums.
    •    
Organize also is key to a perfect wardrobe. When hanging hang all like items to gather for example all short sleeves with short sleeve,all long sleeve with long sleeve & etc.
    •    
I suggest not packing away summer items in the fall/winter months. These items can make great layering pieces.
